City Conversations | Re-Imagining Downtown Vancouver

Iconic Beauty Shots - 06-X3

How do you want downtown Vancouver to look, taste, and feel in 25 years?

2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA). As part of its celebrations, the DVBIA wants to Re-Imagine Downtown Vancouver and develop a collaborative and compelling vision for the 2040 downtown Vancouver experience.

Our downtown is changing—we want to hear from you about where it’s headed. What do you love about downtown Vancouver? What needs to change? How can we make this community one of the best in the world to live, work, play and learn?

To help get you thinking about the possibilities for the future of our downtown Vancouver over the next 25 years, we have invited three guests to present their visions.  Lance Berelowitz, a planner, urban designer, award-winning writer and commentator will look at the evolution of downtown Vancouver’s urban planning and design culture. Keltie Craig from the City of Vancouver will share her vision for downtown as a “healthy city.” Rounding out the panel will be the Very Reverend Peter Elliott, Dean and Rector of Christ Church Cathedral Vancouver, who will discuss his hopes for social inclusion and community building in downtown Vancouver.

Then it’s your turn to question, observe, and offer your perspective and opinions on the future of downtown Vancouver. Please feel free to bring your lunch for this free event.

This SFU City Conversation, co-sponsored by Re-Imagine Downtown Vancouver, takes place at our outdoor site, Lot 19 (in the park at the north end of Hornby St. at W. Hastings St., four blocks west of SFU Harbour Centre you may know it as the location of Mink Chocolates.) It’s a perfect place to enjoy the sun, eat your lunch, and take part in the conversation.
